Nov 6.15 - Congrats to Shane Kraemer, 2015 PWB Provincial Player of the Year...AGAIN
Congrats to Shane Kraemer for once again being named the PWB BC Senior Baseball Player of the Year. He won this award back in 2014 as well. Going back 3 years now, the Sr Blaze have had the Provincial MVP award given out with Shane in 2015 & 2014 and Jesse Peters in 2013. I know Jesse is fired up about the upcoming 2016 and having these 2 guys on your roster.... look out again in 2016. 2015 newcomer Brandon Marklund looks to build on a successful 2015 while Ryan Eiswerth, along with the pitching staff of the Sr Blaze look to head back to the Baseball Canada National Championships in August to try to win their 2nd Championship.
Aug 3 - BLAZE WIN 2015 PWB BC SENIOR BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS (3rd year in 4)
The Sr Blaze started 2015 with the main goal of winning Provincials and getting back to Nationals in 2016. The Blaze have accomplished that goal. The Blaze will once again be representing BC at the Baseball Canada Senior Baseball Championships in Fredericton New Brunswick in August 2016.

Aug 24 - Blaze are 2014 BASEBALL CANADA NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!
The Sr Blaze are the 2014 Baseball Canada National Champions. We would like to thank the City of St John's and the the St John's Amateur Baseball Association for putting on a such a great tournament. We would also like to thank Shawn Schaefer and Scott Tulloch of the Coquitlam Angels and Leon Boyd and Sean Hotzak from the Burnaby Bulldogs for being a part of this National Championship victory. Below are the tournament game highlights:
Game 1 vs Ontario 2 (7-3 W)
Shane Kraemer got the start and went 5.1 innings for the victory giving up only 2 earned runs. Keenan Takatch came into the game to preserve the lead in the 6th inning while Dillon Reynolds got the save. Scott Webster and Bobby Wagner each went 2/3. Bobby Wagner and Joe Germaine each had HR's.
Game 2 vs Nova Scotia (10-2 W)
Shawn Schaefer got the ball in game 2 and pitched the complete game only giving up 6 hits. Offensively, Sean Hotzak went 3/4 and Bob Foerster was 2/3. Graig Merritt, Sean Hotzak and Bob Foerster each had HR's.
Game 3 vs Manitoba (7-3 L)
Leon Boyd was tagged with loss going 4.1 innings while Steven Federau came on in relief to try to keep the Blaze in it. The Manitoba pitcher was tough silencing the Blaze bats when it counted. Bob Foerster was 2/3 at the plate.
Game 4 vs Newfoundland (6-3 W)
Ryan Eiswerth picked up the win going 6.1 innings with Dillon Reynolds picking up the save. Brad Ferraro, Jesse Peters, Sean Hotzak and Mason Cratty each had 2 hits. This was a great game to be a part of as Newfoundland legend Frank Humber pitched the CG for Newfoundland in his retirement game. (his son was his catcher in the game) Blaze HC Dave Diachuk and Frank Humber both played on the National Team.
Game 5 vs New Brunswick (Semi-Finals 1-0 W)
Jesse Peters on the mound was simply great. He pitched 7.2 innings, striking out 10 while only giving up 2 hits. Shawn Schaefer came on in the top of the 8th to hold the team from New Brunswick to 0 runs. Brad Ferraro was 2/4 while Bob Foerster in the bottom of the 8th got the clutch hit, scoring Bobby Wagner from 2nd for the win and a berth in the finals.
Game 6 vs Ontario (Championship Finals 3-0 W)
Shane Kraemer had his best outing of the year picking up the win in a complete game effort. He struck out 13 while only giving up 1 hit. Bob Foerster was 2/4 offensively.
It should be noted that Shane Kraemer, although not named to the tournament all-star team, was the top pitcher of the tournament (21 K's, 2 W). Bob Foerster (.455 avg) and Sean Hotzak (.409 avg) were named to the tournament all-star team.
The Blaze look ahead to 2015 to try to get back to the BC Provincial Championships to try to win a 3rd title in 4 years, and as such get to the 2016 Canadian Championships.
The stats of the year goes to Shane Kraemer who had a simply outstanding season. Please see his final stats below:
